    Sound/Audio Issue

    Hi, I just bought new a pair of headset and when I first tried it, the sound was great(ish) but the mic was terrible, it was very low and had a buzzing noise. Then I lurked around the driver system, I tried rolling back the driver of "High Definition Audio Device" and everything works perfectly even the Audio sounded better and the mic was astonishing!

    The only problem is, because it's an old driver, Microsoft wants to update it to a new driver which I do not want! But I also want to update my other drivers without updating the Sound/Audio Mic driver. Is there anyway that I can block Microsoft to stop updating a certain driver? Thank you

    If it helps,
    Headset: HyperX Cloud (Core)
    Lenovo Y70-70 Touch (Fresh Windows 10 installation from USB)

    Hope someone can help me! Thanks

    "High Definition Audio Device" says you are only using the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver. You should install the correct sound hardware driver for best performance. Go to the Lenovo download site for your specific PC and get the correct sound driver.
